Bed and breakfast in Stockholm
Stockholm and Scandinavia in general are obviously not the cheapest places in our world – ask the experienced tourists. Therefore when we are talking about where to stay in Stockholm we mention several types of Stockholm accomodation – cheaper hostels, rather costly hotels and expensive luxurious hotels, houses and apartments.
Not everyone wants and can find enough funds for places to stay in Stockholm like a prestigious hotel – for example Park Inn or Scandic. The main goal for that kind of people is to explore the city and to discover as much as they can, they are not connected to any certain Stockholm b&b place. Generally students and just people who do not want to spend much money prefer hostels. There are many really good hostels in Stockholm, but we suggest that you check available hotels.
There are tens of small unusual hotels which have that fantastic Swedish style and design. The probability to come on an awesome seasonal discount and reserve a great room for cheap is truly high. The ultimate pro argument is that it is far more enjoyable to live in a place made in the traditional Swedish style than in a typical hostel mostly looks totally like other European hostels.
Check out a ship hotel
On the map we see that actually cheap accomodation in Stockholm is situated near big water. It is the reason for people calling it “Northern Venetia”. It’s really convenient to stay in a ship since basically all ships are located in very interesting parts of the city. Finally, the biggest advantage is that those ships appear to be much more affordable than ordinary hotels. That is really nice accomodation in Stockholm!.
Experienced tourists claim that choosing a ship is actually much cheaper and better than in any “land hotel”. The tourists say that it’s incredibly convenient to put up at a ship because of good location. So you will get both available price and small distance to dozens of fabulous attractions.
Feel the life of a Stockholm inhabitant
Rental house or apartment may also become a good idea. Due to quite high pension in Sweden its citizens can afford such costly rent, which means you need to be ready for the prices. Well, that is the main reason of why houses for rent are not that popular.
However, it doesn’t mean that you cannot find less costly apartments few kilometers away from the center. It will let you save some decent sum and see how local people in residential districts live. It will be a nice time for you. It is also a chance to check if there is a big different between center and other areas of Stockholm.
Rental apartments suit well tourists who are not keen on attending each and every attraction. Non-touristic side is also incredibly interesting. That is how one can get the full view of Stockholm.
Luxury and comfort
Certain travelers, at the same time, prefer putting up at best comfort. You can get all these benefits only in a four or five star hotel. There are prestigious hotels of literally all world players like Radisson and Sheraton. It’s a nice idea to think about local Stockholm hotel chains too. Small Stockholm inns and hotels could also be comfortable enough to satisfy all your requirements.
As for staying in the very city center we would recommend Grand Hotel – its situation is the best. You will be able to walk to a lot of attractions from there. But be ready for really high prices – they can be even higher than in the majority of other European capitals.
Find new friends and a new couch
Undoubtedly, only traditional accommodations like hotels and some hostels offer bed and breakfast in Stockholm. Those who love travel independently will rather prefer a free option called “couchsurfing”. There you will see hundreds of hospitable people from different countries and cities including, of course, Stockholm who invite tourists to come and stay. It’s very easy – make your profile on Couchsurfing, find a possible host from the Swedish capital and then contact him or her. That’s how you will not only see this marvelous city but also strike up new acquaintances.
